Black Redstart or Common Redstart? Iran, Kookherd

Black Redstart (Phoenicurus ochruros) or Common Redstart (Phoenicurus phoenicurus) ?

Looks good for a phoenicuroides. The darker mantle and black chest are good features for seperating the two, with phoenicuroides only showing a faint white eyestripe, and Common redstart showing a very prominent white brow.

definitely a black redstart (phoenicuroides type). black also reaches more down on breast than in common.
